6th Grade students went on their spring fieldtrip to the Provo Reclamation center April 19, 2012.  They have studied microorganisms throughout the year. Students were able to see how the laboratory staff uses their knowledge of microbes to perform water quality tests. The 43-acre East Bay facility is designed to treat an average inflow of 15 million gallons of wastewater each day.  The lab performs about 550 individual tests per week in order to treat the wastewater and reduce impurities.

Sixth graders also enjoyed eating lunch at the 31-acre Bicentennial Park. They were able visit the duck pond and natural wetlands or play on the park equipment. Everyone had a fun time!  WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
